  • War Horse gets to you. It's one from the heart. show more

  • There are extraordinary and beautiful things in War Horse, enough of them to make the movie a pleasure and a worthwhile experience, though not enough to trick the eye or get you believing this movie hangs together. show more

  • War Horse will likely take its place alongside beloved family films. But that doesn't mean sitting through it is pure pleasure. It's a long slog at almost 2½ hours, and occasionally it resorts to obvious sentimentality. At times it's hard to escape the sense that we're watching "Saving Private Ryan"-meets-"The Black Stallion." show more

    So beautifully conceived and filmed I was transported out of Arkansas into dreamland. My husband is 87 and said he was glad to see such a fine film at the last.
